Extra, Extra 

Metlmen's Loss Is 

The World's Gain 

Methuen High School is the place in which 
444 children were cultivated into young adults. 
Over the course of four years, the students ac- 
quired much needed knowledge from their 
teachers and parents which will help them bat- 
tle the abundant pressures of this world. This 
knowledge will serve as a sound foundation for 
their upcoming lives of independence. These 
graduates have accomplished a great deal dur- 
ing their high school years, and more will be 
accomplished by them in the years to come. 

Methuen High has lost a fine lot of young 
adults. Don't worry, however! METHUEN'S LOSS 
IS THE WORLD'S GAIN! 

For further information concerning the 
accomplishments and ambitions of this year's 
graduating class, please examine carefully the 
pages of this most renowned newspaper, The 
Ranger Review.

Features 





There are many things that students are Involved In. Whether It Is 
powderpuff football, spirit week, or fashion. There are those of us who 
are lucky enough to be homecoming queen or be chosen to do the 
morning announcements. Of course, everyone takes exams and is 
up-to-date with the latest fads. We are all depressed on Monday, over- 
joyed when Friday arrives, knowing the weekend is ahead of us. The 
way to overcome the school-day blahs Is love in the morning. There are 
always those few teachers who do something special for us even 
though they are under the threat of Prop. 2 Vs. These are only a few of 
the features in the Ranger Review. Hope you'll enjoy them. 

M.W. 



Powderpuff Football 





This year's powderpuff football game ended up with no 
winners and no losers. The final score was a tie, 8-8. The 
seniors were coached under Mr. Joe Roblllard, and the 
underclassmen were coached by Mr. Fran Molesso. Let's see 
a winner next year! 

J.L. 



Proposition 2 Vz 





In an attempt to lower taxes, town and city officials across the state 
were forced to Implement Proposition Z l /z. The basis of this policy was to 
cut municipal services which in turn would cut government spending 
and taxes. With high hopes, the taxpayers of the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts passed this plan. 

Unfortunately, every proposal has Its drawbacks. Along with limiting 
public services, Proposition ZVz greatly reduced school budgets. Crowded 
classrooms, permanently closed schools, lost Jobs, scarce supplies, and 
reductions in courses and extra-curricular activities are some of the 
ill-effects of the budget cuts today. 

Although many people have experienced setbacks from Prop. 2-/z, 
students are the true sufferers. Government officials and voters looked to 
the possible future financial benefits of 2'/2, but failed to see its disadvan- 
tages to the future adults of America. Growing up today is difficult, but 
without proper aid and education, most kids don't have a fighting chance. 

If we invest money to our children now, we will surely profit from it to 
the future, for they will make a richer and better America. We mustn't 
always be concerned with the present, but must look ahead to the 
approaching years. It is necessary, therefore, that the political leaders of 
Massachusetts re-evaluate this policy so that it will no longer disrupt our 
academic systems. 

S.D. 



Exam . . . ining 




For most kids, SAT means "shock and terror", but actually the letters stand for 
Scholastic Aptitude Test We all recall our first experience with tto^sf Sn we tere 
forced to roll out of bed at an ungodly hour on a Saturday morning. We had to Co throuih 
a long process of filling out our name, address, school, etc. The best part was colortna in 
the dots with a number S pencil. These tests went on for 3 hours. Each student waited in 
anticipation for the 5 minute break after each hour so that he or she could stand and 
stretch his legs. There was a sigh of relief when the tests were finally over Then the lone 
waiting period began. We worried whether our grades were good enough because thev 
were already being sent to the colleges of our choice. 

Another grueling time for us students was when the mid-term exams crept ud Some 
spent hours studying in preparation for the 90 minute tests. These took 4 days They were 
very important for seniors who were trying to get into colleges. Their entire futures were 
dependent on the results from these four days. 

This was not the end of their testing days. College-bound graduates unwittingly set 
themselves up for more tests, number two pencils, name grids, and early hours as they 
go on to achieve better education from the higher institutions of America. 

A student's work is never done, or to quote from another source, "There's no rest for the 
wicked". 

P.B. 




Spirit 




Week 




Once a year, Methuen High School students display their 
school enthusiasm and loyalty during Spirit Week. Many stu- 
dents have hidden talents with respects to originality. This was 
obvious on Friday, Costume Day. There were seen such memor- 
able sights as the deadly Tylenol bottle, the "unique" Go-Go's 
and an assortment of "questionable characters", many of 
whom were drawn from the ranks of the senior class. Monday 
was T-shirt Day, and even though we had "cold atmospheric 
conditions" inside the school, many students still continued to 
show their spirit. Next came Western Day, a day in which 
almost all the participation came from the girls. Besides the 
cowboys and cowgirls, there was even an Indian or two. Every- 
one came dressed appropriately for Preppy, Joe, or Hood Day, 
whether they tried to or not. There were a few interesting 
role-reversals, but most came dressed as hoods. Thursday was 
Favorite Pin and Hat Day. This was the calmest day, but there 
were some peculiar pins with unmentionable sayings. The 
week came to an end with Blue and White Day, and most 
students got involved on this day. The powderpuff football game 
was also planned for this day, but because of the rain, it was 
postponed a week. The game finally ended in a tie.

Here's Looking At You! Fashion '82-'83 



The real world in fashion now is looking like you belong in your clothes. 
Today that's a snap, because there's an unconstructed, uncontrived ease 
about clothes that lets you look like you. Nothing screams fashion, everything 
just looks rich, real quality. Textures are beautiful, fabrics are gorgeous — and 
if it feels good, it looks good. 

Norma Kamali is one of the proponents of this look who has introduced 
women to the elegant way of wearing the new geometric designs. Her use of 
inexpensive materials, such as cotton, tends to look casual as well as classy. 

Looks receiving rave reviews at Methuen High, as well as throughout the 
country, are mini-skirts, that are enjoying a revival, leather and tuxedo en- 
sembles, tailored outfits and Ralph Lauren's much acclaimed Polo collection. 

Accessories are hot items ranging from larger earrings, pins and chokers to 
wide belts, skinny ties and even bow ties. Any of these can be inter-changed 
with a variety of outfits. 

Menswear, as always, remains attractive and uncluttered. The best part 
about it is now most components can be worn by both sexes. Popular items 
include suspenders, hats, oversized overcoats and blazers. 

Leisurewear is seen everywhere at any time of the day. Warm-ups can be 
functional and stylish at the same time. 

All in all, fashion has taken a change for the better. Whatever your choice, 
everything's classy and lived-in looking at the same time ... a very comfort- 
able set-up. 

N.B. 





Oh. God It's Monday 

You know it's Monday when: 
Your alarm doesn't go off. 
You don't have time to shower. 
You miss the bus (or your car doesn't start). 
You arrive at school after homeroom (9:10). 
You have been marked absent. 
It's raining, and you have a fire drill 
It's your last class, and you have an unannounced quiz. 
You arrive home, drained from your miserable Monday, to find President 
Reagan interrupting your favorite soap.

Thank God It's Friday 



You know it's Friday when: 
Your alarm goes off. 
You have time to take a bubble bath. 

All your teachers decided to postpone your tests until Monday. 
It's sunny, and you have a fire drill. 
It's your last class, and you have another fire drill. 

You arrive home, excited about its being Friday, to find out that your friends 
called to tell you that they have tickets to a concert.

Weekends Are Made 



For Students 





The thought of fun-filled weekends Is often the only 
thing that helps students survive a grueling school 
year. As Friday rolls around, and the kids have taken 
just about all the suffering they can stand, the 1 :45 bell, 
ringing In the weekend, suddenly revives them. Not a 
minute is wasted. 

The weekend offers a student many options. It can be 
the perfect opportunity to make a few bucks, or one can 
sit around all weekend recuperating from the last 
week's ordeal and gearing himself up for that of the 
next week. For others, the weekend signifies the extra 
time needed to complete a project or term paper. 

Though some may long for the weekend to arrive for 
these reasons, the most popular view of the weekend is 
one of parties, friends, and fun. These are the times 
which will remain with the high school students for- 
ever. Movies, athletic events, dances, and parues all be- 
come happy memories of the times which will become 
the best of their lives. Weekends seem to have been 
made with high school students in mind.

Announcing 




The everyday ritual occurs at nine o'clock sharp each morning. All of us are asked to 
pause for a moment of silence, which is then followed by the saluting of the flag. The 
seemingly needless announcements wrap up our stay in homeroom. The reason that these 
announcements seem to have no purpose is because they are barely audible over the din of 
voices. It seems, however, that it becomes relatively quieter when the list of "naughty ones" 
are announced over the PA All guilty ones cringe in their seats, hoping their "crimes" will 
go unnoticed and a trip to Mr. Nicholson will not be necessary. 

Announcements that occasionally occur during a class have one of two effects on each of 
their listeners. On the one hand, teachers become quite perturbed when their classes are so 
rudely interrupted; whereas, students are grateful for the diversion from the endless 
lectures of their teachers. 

Afternoon announcements are considered to be the high point of a Btudent's day. Not 
onl.y do they inform each and every one of us concerning pertinent Information about 
scnool life, but they also signify the end of another day at MHS.

Love In The Morning 



I remember a story that a teacher was telling me about when he went to 
school. The teachers and students were shocked to see a couple kiss In the 
halls. They didn't know what to make of it. Back then, of course, it wasn't 
proper to do such a thing. There's a time and place for everything. At least, 
there was. 

Today, teenagers are more open in expressing their feelings to each 
other. It's not so much a shock anymore to see a couple kissing in the 
halls. It's seen as a sign of affection. So when's a better time to show 
affection than in between classes. Times have indeed changed.

Dedication 






The Class of 1983 has chosen two faculty members for their dedication to both 
the academic and extra-curricular life of Methuen High School.

Freshmen 



Show a Methuen High upperclassman a nervous kid with a Mead Trapper Keeper, an Erasermate, and a map of the school, and he'll show you the 
typical freshman. Everyone is able to pick a freshman out of a crowd, even the freshmen themselves. They are not well-known for being nondescript. 

Methuen High freshmen are the ones who eat anything in the cafeteria because they don't know any better. Their lower lips quiver when they are told 
to report to office detention. At least one incoming freshman asks what floor the swimming pool is on. Freshmen must look up their combinations every 
time they go to their lockers, and most of them carry twelve books to every class. When Friday arrives, freshmen sigh with relief and the thought that the 
Methuen Mall is "a great place to be". 

For one year, the seniors are in their glory. The deem themselves far superior to the underclassmen, especially the freshmen. They look upon their 
freshman year with disbelief, saying they couldn't have behaved in such a manner. For most of the seniors however, the tide will turn once again. They 
will be low men on the totem pole when they enter college. They'll eventually move up the ladder again, but before they do, they'll be the ones calling 
attention to themselves with maps, notebooks, and misplaced dorm keys. I hope they enjoy their senior year of high school while they can. 

S.D. 




Sophomore Year 



What can you say about sophomore year? It Is ayear of familiarity and change. The rooms are the same, just as are many of the faces. The teachers are 
the same, but now there is a class lower on the ladder. You are no longer a measly freshman at the bottom of the ladder. You have moved up a step, a 
small one, but none-the-less a step towards graduation. 

There are new classes and new teachers, but still many of the same students as you pass through the halls. It is a year of new activities. Maybe you will 
become a member of the Honor Society. There is always a sports team you can join, or perhaps there will be a part in the Senate for you, or the role as a 
class officer. There is always something to do to make the year memorable. 

The highlight of the sophomore year has to be the receiving of your high school ring. Finally, you have something that says you belong to M.H.S. You 
put time and care into the choosing of your ring because it will be with you all of your life. You want it to be special and unique. Many different things 
make up your sophomore year: friends, teachers, studies, sports, clubs, etc. AH these make up your only year as a high school sophomore. 




The Junior Year 



The junior year 1b the year when you become an upperclassman, even though you're not classified as such in the powderpuff football game. You can 
now push around the Freshman and Sophomores and gain some respect from the Seniors. Probably the biggest change to occur is when you obtain your 
driver's license. You no longer have to depend on your parents and friends to take you whgre you want to go. Another change that might occur is the 
moving up from Junior Varsity sports to Varsity sports. This is when it becomes valuable to win, and you finally are awarded the recognition that you feel 
was long deserved. As the year rolls on, and the Seniors get ready for college, you start to feel more important. Next comes the Junior Prom. It seems as if 
the whole school is getting ready and talking about the prom, even though it is only the juniors who care. The end of the junioryear marks the time of two 
important events: the dreaded SAT's and the long awaited beach days. 





For the graduates of Methuen High School, the last four years 
have brought great changes, not only In their lifestyles, but also 
in their basic attitudes and their understanding of life itself. 
Behind a pen, over a book, on the gridiron, or in the field house, these graduates have 
been drilling for the great maneuver of life. Their high school years prepared them in 
mind and character to take their places in the outside world. For some, these years may 
be compared with the changing seasons. 

Freshman year is analogous with spring because it is a new beginning. When today's 
graduates entered Methuen High, it was merely a strange place full of new faces and 
new experiences. Through the times spent there, they grew along with it, and Methuen 
High eventually became a very special place to them. They had found a place to test 
themselves; intellectually, socially, and emotionally. 

Sophomore year, a year in which students grow and prosper, is like summer. For this 
year's graduates new faces became lasting friendships and experiences became memo- 
ries. They had had times they will always remember; those times filled with friends, 
parties, and challenges. 

Fall, a season marked by change, may be compared with junior year, which is one of 
shedding of the old and preparing for the new. Methuen's graduates realized their 
number of carefree days was limited, and they had to make a decision regarding their 
futures. 

The senior year, winter, is the completion of the cycle. It is the final act of a long 
growing and learning process in preparation for life in the real world. As the land sheds 
its blanket of snow at winter's end, so the graduates slipped out of a very important 
phase of life. They will see a new life before them, just as winter sees the coming of 
spring, and the cycle begins again. 

In the following pages of the Ranger Review 1983, you are invited to become ac- 
quainted with these young graduates of Methuen High School, to share their memo- 
ries, and to admire their goals. In conclusion, I would 
like to extend my sincere congratulations to the mem- 
bers of the Class of 1983 upon the occasion of your 
graduation.

In Memory of Michael Sapia 




V ! 




As time goes by, we often think 
of the friendship that we shared. 
Schooldays, weekends, any time 
We always really cared. 
The good times and the bad 
Mike was there to see them through. 
Now we often sit and wonder . . . 
It can't be, It's not true! 
He'll always be remembered 
Family, fans, and friends, 
We all shared a love for him 
Even more so at this bend. 
The road of life never ceases to surprise 
We must go on, let's dry our eyes. 
If he were here today, 
I'm sure we'd want him to know 
Of the love and respect we held for ) 
It was hard to let him go. 
So as the time goes by, we will often 1 1 
Of the friendship that we sh i 
and the memory we have to keep. 







Focus 



W SOUND OFF 





The students at Methuen High did not go to school Just to learn, read, and do homework, 
for they had other things on which they could "focus". There was even some excitement put 
Into those monotonous school days. Whether It be a false alarm Interrupting the last period 
of the day, a dally weather report concerning the "atmospheric conditions" coming over 
the PA, or the infamous settlng-of-lockers on Are, there was always something of interest 
that kept the students aware of what was going on around school. They were even allowed to 
state their opinions about the school. Some students spent their time running Ranger 
Report, preparing for such programs as Sports Tuesday and special Interviews. Others kept 
busy working In the school store under the Distributive Education progrti: Bome 

took their time to help out with the two BloodmobUes. Some students focused their time on 
being members of the Marching Band or the senior class play, "Cheaper by the D< . 
Many students were also a part of the work study or academic internship programs, v. 
others were performers for the chorus. As you start to turn the pages of the Focus section, 
you will see Just what the students of M.H.S. "focused" on In order to keep themselves busy. 
Of course, all this would occur after their studies.

Don't Worry It's Not A Fire! 




Sitting in class, I wonder when the next one will be, that sudden fire 
alarm that has become a daily ritual at Methuen High School The once 
spontaneous reaction to these alarms has changed to one of amusement 
Here we go again, another alarm! As I gladly start to leave the classroom I 
wait tor some friends, and we begin our daily stroll around the school There 
is no confusion outside because we seem to spend almost as much time 
outside as we do in the classrooms. We wait for the fire trucks to arrive so we 
can ridicule them for wasting their time answering the alarm During the 
cold winter months, for some unexplained reason, these fire drills seem to 
come to an abrupt halt. If and when we do have a winter drill though be 
sure not to be standing on the path in front of the teachers' entrance or you 
will be sure to be caught in the middle of a massive snowball fight. As we wait 
for the three short blasts of the fire alarm to signal the end of this ten 
minute "vacation", we cheerfully say to our friends, "See you at the next fire 
drill", and slowly begin to file into school and wait for the announcement on 
the intercom to tell us to what period we are to report.

"Presenting ..." 






LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION! These are the famous words of the cast and crew of "Ranger Report", Methi 
High School's own student-run telecast, aired every Wednesday night on Cable 27. The program started" 
in 1980 with the talents of Dan Bishop, then a sophomore at Methuen High School, Patt Moser, 
specialist and faculty advisor from the media center. Since then the show has grown and gained pop 
as well as cast members. The cast now includes Dan Bishop, anchorman, Al Daneau, David Habeeb, J( 
Makus, Bill Robert, and Steve Sanderson. They also have a new advisor — Ken Hoffman. These people pi 
tremendous amount of time into the program. They come up with all of the story ideas, do all of 
interviewing, and edit all of the stories. In effect, they do all of the work. 

In the past, the Ranger Report crew has come up with such stories as: interviews with David Toma, Will* 
Whistle, Charles Laquidara from WBCN, and Ted O'Brien from Channel 7. They have covered sen 
such as Ranger Spirit week, the Senior Class Play, and other school functions. They also cover all of the games 
for Sports Tuesday. 

They haven't won any Emmies yet, but I'm sure that if they keep up the spectacular work, the Nielsans 
surely notice. ...

The Methuen High School Chorus has 
grown bigger and better in the past few years. 
It has gone from a small group of twelve to the 
full, resounding sound of today's chorus. The 
chorus has also branched out the past two 
years into two more small groups, the "Ar- 
rangers" and the "Harmonettes". 

The "Arrangers" are a group of talented 
students who enjoy singing and dancing. 
This swinging choir made its debut in the 
first annual M.H.S. variety show performing 
the number "Walk On Down". They're a 
talented group with a lot of enthusiasm for 
performing. 

The "Harmonettes" is another small group 
in the performing arts department. This is a 
barbershop trio which performs old classics 
with a three-part harmony barbershop flare. 
They delight their audiences with their me- 
lodic sound. 

These small groups may not be appreciated 
in M.H.S., but look out Hollywood, here they 
come!

It's Not Just A Job, It's An Adventure

The time is 1 130 when this batlallion of students march voluntarily to their battlefields of the surrounding areas. These battlefields are their 
places of employment or education. It is byjolnlng academic internship, headed by General Salmonsohn, or by signing up for work-study (General 
Murphy), that these students have the right to further their future plans. Many students become envious, and, some even Jealous, of these lonely 
soldiers of fortune, but through determination, they fight this sea of insults in order to observe a profession or receive "hands on" training. Through 
the leadership of General Salmonsohn, the academic internship program, bat. #01589, sends students on Into places of interest in 
order to observe and experience the reality of each profession. Through the comradery of General Murphy, bat. #01588, the work-study program 
helps interested students leave school and experience the rigors of life. It is through this sight of reality that the Academic Internship and 
Work-Study programs thrive. Each participant can be proud and hold his head high as'he states, "It's not just a Job, it's an advent .

New England has always been known for its fluctuating weather but 
this year the temperature Inside Methuen High School seemed to 
change more frequently than did the temperature outside. One snowy, 
windy December day high school students found themselves prepar- 
ing for early dismissal because of "unfavorable atmospheric condi- 
tions", In other words, It was 80° Inside the school. A stranger to the 
school might suggest opening a few windows in order to cool the school, 
but one must remember that M.H.S. has windows which do not open. 
Yet, the next day It seemed as If we were undergoing energy conserva- 
tion since the heat didn't seem to be on. Engineers were called in who 
set about using their fancy tools to inform us that there was something 
wrong with the air In the school. This was a conclusion which came as 
no surprise. Something which did come as a surprise, though was 
when, for some unexplainable reason, the water system broke and 
again students prepared for early dismissal. After months of this 
Intolerable weather, most students survived the sometimes unbear- 
able conditions with only minor discomforts such as headaches, blood- 
shot eyes, and an occasional case of the chills. "To be or not to be 
comfortable" remains an interesting question.

Who would have ever guessed that there could be 
so many of these stalking creatures under one roof? 
Their long, slender bodies of red and yellow, along 
with the repeatedly forgotten combinations, are a 
constant part of the student life. 

Lockers are like mouths, opening and closing con- 
tinuously, some overflowing with knowledge, some 
Just full of garbage. 

Lockers of knowledge are the ones filled with 
books. Then there are the lockers with the "essen- 
tials": Jackets, hats, gym attire, and writing utensils. 
Representing the individual owner are the stickers of 
hobbies, rock groups, teams, rainbows, and of course,

the misplaced passes, forgotten lunches, tasteless 
pieces of gum, and lost book covers . . . garbage? 

Lockers have also been known for their great sup-

greatest rendezvous occur at "the lockers". 

It Is not possible to Imagine this building without its 
lockers. How empty it would be . . . what If they could 
talk? C.P. 




"It Makes Cents" 



The Distributive Education Club of America is a student-centered organization which 
promotes leadership and personal development. This program enables students to go out 
and find good jobs on their own. Through their jobs they learn how to make decisions 
and become more responsible. During the school day, these students are encouraged to 
work in the school store, and it is here that they learn marketing skills such as 
advertising, display and sales techniques. This experience prepares the students for 
competition. This competition is conducted on the regional, state, and national level 
giving the Distributive Education student the opportunity to travel around the nation 
and meet new people in the fields of marketing and distribution. Yearly, scholarships are 
given out by Mr. Pilat, the Distributive Education advisor, to Distributive Education 
students to further their education.

It Takes All Types 




In November and May, the senior class held its biennial blood donor drives. Blood was donated 
by students and faculty alike, and the number of people who turned out for these events reflects 
how successful this year's drives were. Sixty- four pints were collected in November, and seventy- 
six in May. 

The donation center, the field house, was open from early morning to mid-afternoon, but 
those responsible for organizing the drive worked many more hours than scheduled. Much of 
this credit must be extended to Senior class volunteers, who were noticeably present the entire 
day waiting on and assisting donors. 

Some first time donors were a little squeamish, but most people overcame their initial fear and 
the entire day went off without a hitch. Once again, for the success of the blood drive, a special 
thanks is extended to the donors, volunteers, senior class members, and Mr. David Whiting, 
senior class advisor.

Deck the Halls 



The Spirit of Christmas 

Of all the old festivals, however, that of Christmas awakens the strongest and most 
heartfelt associations. There is a tone of solemn and saered feeling that blends with our 
conviviality, and lifts the spirit to a state of hallowed and elevated enjoyment. 

— Washington Irving 

Christmas remains the most treasured day of the year — a time of love and celebration to 
share with family and friends. Everywhere there is some form of feasting and song, and the 
warmth inherent In the Christmas season is shared by all. Everywhere — for at least this 
special day — peace and goodwill prevail among men and among students.

Let's Get Physical 




No, this article is not about Olivia Newton-John's hit single 
"Let's Get Physical", but it is about the fitness craze which 
has taken America and Methuen High School by storm. 

Fitness isn't just tennis and team sports anymore. Getting 
"physical" entails much more than these. It takes all kinds 
from aerobics and nautilus to weightlifting and jogging. 
Aerobics has become a very popular form of exercise. 
Thanks to Jane Fonda's and Richard Simmon's workout 
albums and diet books plus Jane's workout center and 
Richard's television program, everyone has gotten into the 
act. Thanks also goes to Diana Ross for her aerobics album, 
which include her hit singles "Muscles" and "Work Your 
Body". 

Men and women are building up in their basic sports gear, 
that includes such items as sweats, T-shirts, tanks, head- 
bands, leg warmers and sneakers and are jazzing them up 
with whites and slick accessories. We'll call it a form of 
"Jock-Chic", if you will. 

My conclusion: Exercise is one of the biggest energy boos- 
ters around. It gives you a sense of discipline and self- 
confidence. As I said, exercise is energy and energy is a state 
of body and a state of mind.

St. Patrick's Day 



St. Patrick's Day is an Irish holiday. But, is it just for the 
Irish? Most certainly not! On that particular day of the 
year, everybody Is Irish. This was quite evident in the high 
school on St. Patrick's Day, 1983. Many students made a 
conscious attempt at wearing a green outfit, even to the 
extent of purchasing green carnations and wearing 
green hats. Even some of the teachers got into the act. 
They also wore the Irish green and possessed the lively 
spirit of the Irish. All in all, St. Patrick's Day, 1983 proved to 
be a well-supported holiday.

The Varsity Soccer team had a successful year, 
finishing with a record of 8-6-4. The team was led by 
captains Rob Mulse and Scott Slomba. The Senior class 
was represented by Mike Barry, Rick Rousseau, Mike 
Bolduc, Chucky Lima and Dave Karam. 




Servin' It Up 




The 1982 Methuen High School Girl's Volleyball 
Team was both gratifying and at the same time frus- 
trating. The team began Its 14-4 record with a come 
from behind victory which snapped defending state 
champion Chelmsford forty match winning streak. 
In addition, the Rangers were able to defeat eventual 
league champion Billerica In both regular season 
matches. The frustration was supplied by a much 
Improved Dracut team and single losses to Tewk- 
sbury and our second match loss to Chelmsford. 

The season did provide its rewards with a second 
place finish and a state tournament berth which 
resulted in a first round loss. 

Two players, Alicia Collopy and Julie Leonard, were 
selected to the first team of the Coaches All-League 
All-Stars. In addition, Monica Baker was named to 
the second team and Michelle Jozokos was given 
Honorable Mention. Other Senior members were 
Mary Ann Mistal, Lisa Desehamp and Roberta Ros- 
marino. 

In all, a successful season was produced by a lot of 
hard work and dedication.

Hip, Hip, Hooray! 




The Champions 




The football team provided the students 
I and community with a fantastic 9-0-1 sea- 
son. Methuen defeated Lowell 14-12 under 
the lights at Lowell in what was considered 
one of the finest football games ever witnes- 
sed In this area. Several players who made 
the All-League and Eagle-Tribune Ail-Star 
Team Included Tom Lallberty, Ertck Kuchar, 
John Motta, Mike O'Connell, Scott Bleczinskl, 
Dave Collzzl, Jim Mellor, Barry Tardugno, 
and Mike Shlpulskl. Tim Getchell was 
selected to the Boston Globe All-Scholastic 
Team as a linebacker. The seniors were in- 
volved In thirty-four wins, two ties, and four 
losses. They were defeated by less than one 
touchdown In all games lost. The seniors won 
two M.V.C. titles and missed the third by a 
single point — a fitting end to a great career.

The Boys Varsity Cross Country team had an in- 
teresting season because it's the first time in 10 years 
that the boys had a losing record of 4-6. The team was 
led by Captain Jim Donahue, who was undefeated in 
dual meets, and was elected to the Boston Globe AU- 
Seholastlc All Star Team. He also qualified f : i 
Junior Olympic TAG National Champlonsh. 
the fourth year in a row, and won the Catholic Memo- 
rial Invitational Meet, Division 2, in a record winning 
time, and finally broke the Methuen home : 
record with a time of 13:19.5 Other senior runners 
included Tim Vermette, Tony Quaglietta, Paul 
Bergeron, Tom Vermette and Mike Hlllard Next year 
looks promising with three time M.V.C. all-star Chris 
Cameron returning. 



On The Road Again 




The 1982 Girls Cross Country season was not as suc- 
cessful as it has been In the past. Part of the reason for 
the team's 4-4 record In the M.V.C. was due to the fact 
the league has become much more balanced than in 
the past. The team was ably led by Senior Co-captalns 
Ellen Gray and Christine Dlzogllo. Individually Christ- 
ine had a fine year being defeated only three times In 
dual meets, placing 6th in the Dlv. I State Meet and 
qualifying for National's In the TAC. Junior Olympic 
competition. Christine was also chosen as an M.V.C. All 
Star for the third year in a row. 



Take Down 




The 1982-83 wrestling team moved a few steps closer to the top 
of Massachusetts wrestling by finishing 6th (out of 18 school 
the Division I North Sectional Tournament and 13th in the Divi- 
sion 1 State Tournament. Both of these tournament placings were 
the best yet for a Methuen wrestling team. 

In all, six wrestlers qualified for the state tournament Co-capt. 
Mike Bolduc placed 6th at 107 lbs. David Kraunelis was 4th at 114 
lbs. Mark Jozokos was 6th at 187 lbs. Eric Boes (100 lbs), Dan 
McCarthy (121 lbs.), and John Saba (169 lbs. ) competed at the 
"states" but didn't place. 

In dual meets the wrestlers led by Mike Bolduc and fellow 
co-capt. Brian Boes were 9-5. The 5 losses were to teams who 
all finished in the top 5 in their state tournaments. 

With 9 out of 12 starters returning the outlook continues to look 
bright for Methuen High wrestling.

Pothler competed like experienced veterans. Sophomores 
Darlene LaPlante and Liz Perrault each had a great year. We 
look forward to future seasons, but we'll miss our seniors. 




Hanging in There 




=fi 




The Boys Gymnastic team finished up with a 4 and 2 record, second place In 
the North Shore Gymnastic league and 7th place In the State. League Individual 
Champions were Steve Bissonette; 2nd in the AH Around, 6th on side horse, 3rd 
on parallel bars, 1 st on vaulting and 5th on rings. Andy Vermette placed 2nd on 
the rings and parallel bars. In the State Individuals, Andy Vermette placed 5th on 
rings and 10th on parallel bars and Steve Bissonette placed 8th on vaulting. 
These two boys are the first from Methuen to ever place in the Finals. The seniors 
on the team included Jimmy Lorenzo, John Palumbo, Steve Bissonette, and 
Jamie Comerford.

Breaking the Ice 







The young Methuen High hockey team finished Its season with a 6-8-5 
record. The team was led by captains John Motta and Chucky Lima. Other 
seniors on the team Included John Bradley, Mike Marcoux, Bob Donald, 
Scott Slomba, and Brian Letourneau — all of which demonstrated a very 

good attitude throughout the season. 




It's All Downhill From Here 




This year's Methuen High School ski team was 
led by senior captain Tom Reagan and junior cap- 
tains Kris Topham, Rob Brown, and Erin Com- 
erford. Included in the nearly forty competitors 
were seniors Doug Brandin, David Riel, Laura San- 
tosuosso, and Kim Avery. Coaching the boys and 
girls teams were Mr. Norm Comeau and Mrs. Ma- 
rion Girardi. Thanks to these fine coaches, the 
team had many fine performances at Bradford Ski 
Area. 




A Clean Sweep 




This year's Boys Indoor track team was one of Methuen's finest teams ever. This extremely 
successful season saw memorable victories at the Methuen Invitational, M.V.C. League Meet, 
Northern Area Meet and State Class B Meet. Along with these laurels was the undefeated dual 
meet season and thus the dual meet championship. The team had the State Class B relay 
championship In the shot-put: Dave Collzzl, Tom Laliberty, and Rob Marggraf — and the 
shuttle hurdles: Dan Martin, Scott Bleczinskl, Mike Barry, and Jeff Baker. New school records 
were made by Mike Barry and Dan Martin in the highjump, Dan Martin and Jeff Baker in the 
hurdles, and Jim Donahue in the two mile. The two mile relay, Jim Donahue, Chris Cameron, 
Mike Hillard and Tim Vermette, also set a new field house record. Other seniors who shall be 
missed are Paul Bergeron, Allen Firth, Fred Habib, Fred Iannuceilll, Tony Quaglietta and Mike 
Shipulskl. This season is one that shall be remembered in the years to come.

Runners Take Your Mark

The girls winter track season ended In a 
surprising 5-2 record, with surprise victories 
over many competitive teams. Thanks to five 
great seniors — Monica Baker, Colleen Blec- 
zinskl, Ellen Murdock, Chris Dizoglio, and 
Roberta Rosemarino.

Hit or Miss 




The Varsity Softball Team finished the 
season at 10-5. Senior members in- 
cluded Sandy Novak, Dawn Vincinguer- 
ra, Joann L'ltalien, Karen Toto and Jo 
Palmisano. Jo Palmisano made the con- 
ference Ail-Star team and was nomin- 
ated for the Boston Globe All-Scholastic 
team. Sandy Novak and Theresa Pad- 
vaskas made honorable mention for the 
conference All-Stars. 

C.B. 




Teed Off 



The 1 983 golf season record ended at 3-9. The team was young 
and inexperienced, therefore, the season would have to be consi- 
dered a rebuilding year because of the loss of four, three year 
letter winners. 

This year gave the young players a chance to gain valuable 
experience. Next year looks quite optimistic, and with hard work, 
the young players will develop into fine golfers. The team roster 
consisted of seniors Keith Gagnon, Joe Flsichelli, and Mike Mar- 
coux. Other team members included Peter Filocamo, Jeff Gerardi, 
Mark Zraket, Ken Hewson, Peter Nicolosi, Sal Piazza, and Dave 
Richardson. 




Making a Hit 



'F* 



fr (fr A 1 ' 





It was a very frustrating season for the varsity baseball 
team, since eight of the ten league losses could have gone 
either way. Six of those losses were by one ran. Even though it 
was a tough season, the team's spirit continued through the 
end Mike Shipulski and Rob Muise were the co-captains of the 
team, with Mike Shipulski being voted to the All-Conference 
team.

Clearing All Hurdles 



*(>J%£" / 



lilillU 

The girls track team finished the 1983 spring sea- 
son with a 4-5 record. The season was disappointing 
and rewarding at the same time; disappointing be- 
cause of the effect a rash of injuries had on the 
outcome of the season and rewarding because of the 
great individual efforts made by the girls and their 
"never quit" attitude. This team was led by the 
greatest group of seniors the team has ever had.

The 1983 boy's tennis team finished the season with a 5-13 
record, placing sixth In the ten team Merrimack Valley Confer- 
ence. 

Despite thl6 rather disappointing record, there were a num- 
ber of significant achievements. Glen Grlllo, a junior, was the 
most consistent player on the team. Glen finished with a 15-1 
record during league play, and advanced to the North Sectional 
Semi-finals In the State Individual Tournament. Glen was rec- 
ognized for his outstanding play by his selection to the confer- 
ence All Star team. 

Senior Peter Sergl also complied an impressive record of 12-4 
at first singles and advanced through three rounds during the 
state tournament. 




Game . . . Set . . . Match 




The girl's tennis team experienced another successful season 
with a 13-7 record. Senior captain Maryann Mistal had an out- 
standing record at second singles with many exciting three set 
matches. Senior doubles players Cheryl Sprague, Alicia Collopy, 
and Lisa Sheafer had many tough matches, but played great for 
the Rangers. 

Good luck next year, Mary!

Social Scene 




What, is the student body Interested in? Do they like trying their hands at computers or spending time writing articles and taking pictures? Some are 
interested in making it on Broadway, so they are perfecting their singing, dancing, and acting skills. One can practice becoming a politician or a 
musician or even a television anchorman. Many spend time at work while others voice their complaints to the School Committee. A few organizations 
were established to reward the student who succeeds scholastically. The high school even offers organized bowling and skating clubs. Explore the Social 
Scene section of the Ranger Review and see how the student body of M.H.S. is spending its time.

What are class officers? They are an 
elected, four-member group who raise 
money for their class. Every class has 
them. The money that they raise is for the 
expenses of their Senior Year. These ex- 
penses include caps and gowns, the senior 
prom, class day, awards night, and gradua- 
tion. As one can tell, these four people are 
very important to one's high school years.

We, as editors of Ranger Review, found It necessary to write this article in order to enlighten fellow graduates 
on the work necessary to create a yearbook. 

One may think that the yearbook staff simply dove into its endeavors without any knowledge or experience. 
This is far from the fact! A representative few attended seminars in order to learn "the tricks of the trade". They, 
along with their advisor, Mrs. Krusell, and Mr. Garon, a representative from Hunter Publishing Company, 
taught the remainder of the staff those needed procedures. Much time and energy went into our learning the 
essentials, but like everything, experience was needed. 

A newspaper format was selected by the staff. It was then time to begin the main part of the book. Many hours 
were spent in order to complete the book. It was extremely difficult because we all did not have a study together. 

There were many problems that did arise during the course of the year. Students complained that we were 
showing favoritism in our choice of pictures. Also, we had numerous problems with photography. Arrival of 
pictures never seemed to be on time. To top it all off, we were kicked out of the teacher's room where our desk was 
located. We did not have any access to the typewriters. There were many other problems which are too 
numerous to mention. 

Despite the many problems, the year was successful. Hopefully, our finished product, the '83 yearbook, is 
evidence of this.

STUDENT ADVISORY COUNCIL 



Who runs Methuen High's activities? The answer is "The 
Student Senate". They have meetings every Tuesday 
school to decide when, where, and why some activity is g 
to take place. This organization arranges times for every 
fund raiser that takes place in Methuen High. 

The members of the "Student Advisory Committee" attend ] 
the School Committee meetings to bring forth ideas t 
school committee members. These issues concern Met 1 
High's students. At times they are adopted and at other t i 
they are vetoed, but at least the student body is aware : f 
events going on at M.H.S.

Although most people think of the Na- 
tional Honor Society as a "Smart Club," it 
really is not. It is true that to become a 
member, one must possess a high aca- 
demic average, but one must also have 
strength in character, service, and lead- 
ership. National Honor Society mem- 
bers perform many different services 
ranging from tutoring students to hold- 
ing bake sales during mid-terms and 
finals. The National Honor Society is an 
organization that rewards the well- 
rounded student, but a member is re- 
quired to spend many hours helping fel- 
low students.

Lifestyle 




FAbs 



There were certain special activities that went on during our last year at 
Methuen High that were an important part of high school life. It all actually 
started junior year with the semi-formal at DiBurro's. We all had anxiously 
awaited our own first prom. The activities of our senior year started off with the 
Foreign Language Department's inductions of the Spanish and French Honor 
Society. Students then were given a chance to reveal their talents at Methuen's 
first annual variety show. During the various vacations during the school year, 
many went off to seaside resorts and to some of the beautiful countries of Europe. 
The Dance Company also held its annual successful show at the high school. 
Many students were then awarded for their scholastic achievement in each 
subject at Awards Night. Approximately seventy students were also recognized 
for their high academics at the Honors Banquet. The school year was finally over, 
and everyone celebrated at the senior prom held at the Sheraton Rolling .Green 
Inn. On June 5, 1 983, it was officially over. It was graduation day, and classmates 
shed a few tears and shared a few hugs, sadly saying good-bye. Take a look at the 
Lifestyle section and be reminded of how the "life" at Methuen High actually was.

Nursery School 




Most students at Methuen High School are not aware that there Is a nursery school In 
their high school. They are not aware, also, that the nursery school has been in existance 
since the establishment of this school, eight years ago. 

The nursery school is for Methuen residents only, and its six week session begins in 
March. The children are usually three or four years of age. The school is taught by Ms. 
Benner-Hall. In addition, Mrs. Swider is teaching the class for the first time this year. 

Juniors and Seniors are able to sign up for the Child Developement class which is run 
in conjunction with the nursery school. This course helps the students consider a career 
with children and also helps them learn and explore parenthood. It is unfortunate that 
enrollment in the class has been predominantly from the ranks of the girls at M.H.S. In 
the eight year history of the school, only about twenty boys have signed up. The nursery- 
school helps students learn the creative play of children and learn about kids. They also 
learn about the children themselves. They learn about the creative process of childhood 
and how this processing can result in the production of something such as coloring, or 
cutting out pictures. Most importantly, a student in the Child Developement course 
learns about herself, and learns from her experiences with these young children.

Travel Notes 



Where can your paradise be found? Several groups 
of Methuen High School students set out this April 
vacation to frolic, meet new people, and relax. Some 
decided to go to Europe. Ms. Anne Marie Florilla and 
her travel companions visited Switzerland, Prance, 
Germany, and Belgium. Ms. Florilla did not heed her 
own warnings. She had her passport stolen, and her 
students were forced to smuggle her into Switzer- 
land. The group had a great time at all the discos! 

Ms. Carol Dufresne went to France and Switzer- 
land. They all had a wild time. Because her wallet was 
missing, Lisa Deschamp learned how to survive on 
$5 a day. 

Mrs. Leonie Longshore's group spent 7 days (and 
nights!) sunning, shopping, and sightseeing in Ber- 
muda. Among the most memorable sights were the 
huge coconut trees, the long, hot beaches, and the 
numerous bottles of solarcaine! 

A group of seniors, chaperoned by Mrs. Ann Marie 
Krusell, Mrs. Stott and Mrs. Gagnon took a 5 day trip 
to Virginia Beach. Also, the band went to Florida to 
participate in the Disneyland parade. Between com- 
petitions, they visited Epcot and Mickey. 

The International Club spent a weekend in New 
York, where they visited the U.N. and saw many 
exciting sights.

. . . And That's The Way It Was — 1983! 




On Class Day, seniors were able to have a last good-natured laugh at themselves through the readings of the History, Will, and Prophecy. The 
memories of their beginnings were jarred with the reading of the History by Sandra Novak and George Nasser. Students laughed at the assortment of 
gifts bestowed upon the faculty and fellow classmates as Dina Savastano and Michael Shipulski read the Will, and they eryoyed imagining themselves 
and friends holding the outrageous positions described by Tom Laliberty and Mike O'Connell as they read the Prophecy. Lori Macleod was the Class Day 
speaker, and class officers in attendance were Nancy Bakios, Erick Kuchar, Thomas Laliberty, and David Colizzi. The highlight of the day was the 
presentation of a diploma to Arthur Nicholson, making him an honorary member of the class of 1983.

The Night of the Stars 



Students who had excelled In particular subjects and activities dur- 
ing their years at Methuen High were honored at the Senior Awards 
Night on Tuesday, May 31st. Several of the awards received at this 
affair were the Joyce Minzner Memorial Trophy, the Dartmouth Book 
Award, the Semper-Fidelis Award, and the DAE Award. Mr. David 
Whiting, senior class advisor, assisted in the presentation of awards, 
and a reception in the upper lobby followed.

The Royal Feast 



On Thursday evening, June 2, 1983, seniors who had achieved 
honors status were gathered in recognition of their academic excel- 
lence. Dr. Paul Zdanowicz, superintendent of Methuen public 
schools, was the master of ceremonies, and Father O'Connor of St. 
Monica's Church delivered the invocation and benediction. After din- 
ner and an address by Dr. William Hogan, President of the University of 
Lowell, gold tassles and certificates of merit were awarded by Kenneth 
Dolloff, Arthur Nicholson III, Gregory L'Heureux, and David Whiting.

A Night To Remember 



After hours of preparation, the seniors of Methuen High School 
gathered for the biggest celebration of their senior year — the 
senior prom. 

Glamorous gowns and formal tuxedoes were the attire for t 
end-of-the-year occasion, held at the Sheraton Rolling Green ] 
Andover. Sleek, black limosenes transported many of tho 
attending this gala event. Many others arrived anxiously on ihsti 
own. 

Following the meal, the party continued with dancing of an 
kinds, including such novelties as the hokey-pckey. A g: : z time 
was had by all, and a celebration to long be remembered. 




Onward & Upward 




Standing in front of the main entrance or at the bus loop, we would playfully 
wave good-bye to our friends, never dreaming of the day to come when we 
would have to wave good-bye in earnest. Would we ever have to salute them for 
a last time? Of course not. We had only just begun. 

But inevitably that day and the end has come. Graduation Day is upon us. 
That future we used to dread so anxiously is now ours to mold. We gaze through 
the door to the future; a future that is rich in promise. 

As we prepare to pass through this door, we bid fond farewell to teachers and 
old friends and say hello to new experiences. "Adieu" to all who have made a 
memorable past, and welcome to a bright future.

The Year in Review. 

* 1 1 9 5 nJI 





Nineteen hundred and eighty-two was a year teeming with history- making 
From Poland, where Solidarity made a desperate last attempt against gov- 
repression, to Lebanon, where the PLO was forcefully evacuated by the Isr 
year was host to many momentous global happenings. 

From Central America to Southwest Asia, war was the headlining story of 1 1 
They ranged from guerrilla skirmishes to full-scale battles at sea In El S; 
thousands died at the hands of those committed to putting an end to a 
colonial territory. In early June, five hundred Israeli tanks moved into Leb 
expel the inhabitating PLO guerillas. The war between Iran and Iraq entered 
year in September. And so it went. By the end of 1982, eighteen countries had 
war, and an estimated 125,000 people had lost their lives. 

Nevertheless, nineteen eighty- two consisted of much more than war parap 1 . 
and bloodshed. After a twelve-year campaign for ratification, the Equal Rights Am- 
mendment was defeated. In New York City, 700,000 anti-nuke activists staged the 
largest political demonstration in U.S. history. Twelve million people wer- 
ployed. E.T. was on its way to becoming the greatest blockbuster of all time. In ' 
Square Garden, 2,075 couples were married by the Reverend Sun Myung Ma 
Unification Church, and a long-awaited monument to honor Vietnam veterans was 
erected in Washington to the delight of thousands. 

The graduates remember 1982 as a year in which world and American his' 
made, but they also remember 1982 as a year which marked a special time in the 
history of their lives. Nineteen eighty-two was the beginning of their senic: 
high school. It paved the way for 1983, the year of their graduation and a time o' 
transition in their lives. There is no doubt that future world events will influence their 
lives. Some of the graduates may even be responsible for shaping these events. 



Class History 



We the class of 1 983 entered Methuen High School, in the year 1979, eagerly awaiting the many challenges which 
lay ahead. With homeroom before first period and not knowing thai we could return to our lockers at the end of 
each class, we aimlessly wandered through the halls becoming easy targets for upperclassmen ridicule because 
of the stack of books in our arms. Soon realizing that the science department was not on the third floor, we were 
leary about what to expect in our future years at the high school. 

Ready to take on the challenge of leading our freshman class were Josephine Palmisano — President, Mary 
Wajda — Vice-President, Nancy Bakios — Secretary, and Robyn Pappaiardo — Treasurer. The six student senate 
members included Nancy Moore, Cindy Shaheen, Lisa Deschamp, Joy Davis, Lauran Mariano, and Joyce Paris. 
The freshman sports teams which formed the foundation of our future athletic program exemplified potential 
and promise for our upcoming varsity seasons. 

The freshman football team completed a highly successful season with a record of 9 wins losses and 1 tie. 
Memorable players carrying the team were Frank Giarruso, Brian Welch, Mitch Kamal, Dave Smith, Dave Riel, 
Glen Gearin, Al Firth, Ray Hollins and Sean Nartiff. 

Also holding up to the winning tradition, almost, was the freshman soccer team which compiled a 2-7-3 record. 
Superstars included Brian Letourneau, Mark Lyons, and Tony Quaglietta. 

Cheering us on to victory were Linda Mcintosh, Sue Boynes, Jennifer Phelps, Nancy Tardif, Tricia Bergeron, 
Allison Bagdoian, Sue Bourcher, Mary Boucher, Lisa Grasso, Carin Allen, Chris Abraham, and Debbie Dumont 
who were members of our star cheering squad. Our weekends proved to be exciting with a wild night escaping up 
and down the pathways of the Methuen Mall. Sophomore class officer elections held at the end of the freshman 
year resulted in Dina Savastano-President, Mary Wajda -- Vice-President, Nancy Bak - Secretary, and 
Josephine Palmisano — Treasurer. The six freshman senators were all voted in for another year. 

With one year of experience behind us, we were no longer the targets of ridicule. Our newly gained authority was 
used to some advantage. Some of us proved to be successful while others weren't so lucky. Some of the infamous 
names falling into this category and heard daily over the PA were Joe Lima, Cory Bannister, Renee Couture, Lisa 
Giordano, Art Lopresti, Eileen McKone, and Cheryl Cebula. Two of the most memorable moments in our 
sophomore year included the two well attended fights. John Motta and Dave Morin provided Mrs. Van Horn's 
homeroom with front row seats to the premier battle of the year when they came crashing through the 
blackboards. Also trying to get into the action were Chuck Fitzpatrick and James Pinto. One 
team proved to be successful with another undefeated season. 

Dropping from a 20 member squad to an 8 member squad was the JV Basketball team which took over the 
tradition of the freshman soccer team with a record of 9-12. Members of the team included Gary Poulin, Pat 

Lannan, and Bill Kenny. 

Other notable participants in the athletic department were Robin Ciarcia, April Mello, Robin Stevenson, Kathy 
Whiteside, Sue Chretian, Jim White v Gina Hadley, Lee Ramos, Scott Lister, Tom Battaglia, and Mark Das. 

At the end of the sophomore year, the prestigious class rings arrived but, unfortunately, not all buyers received 
them. This was because some unprestigious people borrowed some of the rings, permanently. 

At the closing of the school year was the traditional Honor Society Induction of 21 students. 

With thoughts concerning our junior year we held our elections which resulted in Mary Wajda — President, Dina 
Savastano — Vice-President, Nancy Bakios — Secretary, and Josephine Palmisano — Treadurer. The senators 
were Nancy Moore, Cindy Shaheen., Colleen Bleczmski, Peggy Donovan, Jill Stackelin, and Carolyn Pugh. 

Our promotion to junior year brought about new responsibilities with thoughts focused on our. future careers. 

However, some of us were not as serious as others and this was noticeable because of the continual repetition of 
certain names heard over the intercom requesting them to report to the office during a designated period. These 
familiar names were Lynn Baillargeron, Pam Becotte, Diane Tremblay, Rhonda Fitzmaurice, Gina Luchesi, and 
Doug Brandin. The 1980-81 interscholastic athletic program was honored for the third consecutive year by 
winning the "Earnest B. Dalton" trophy for program excellence. Some examples of the outstanding performance 
included the boys and girls cross country team with combined record of 16-1. Excellent performances were

turned in by Jim Donahue, Mike Hillard, Chris DiZoglio, and Ellen Gray. 

Jamie Comerford, John Palumbo, Steve Bissonette, and Jimmy Lorenzo led the boys' gymnastics team to a 
notable 7-2 record. Our future girls' swim team captains, Lisa Morin and Doreen O'Donahue, ended the season 
with a winning record. 

Although they were not the most publicized sports teams, the golf team and girls' tennis team proved to be the 
most noteworthy. A season 12-0 record gave the golf team with members Joe Fisichelli, Mike Marcoux, and Peter 
Tine the only undefeated spring sport record. Lsoing only one match and winning 15 was the girls' tennis team, 
with such outstanding members as MaryAnn Mistal and Maribeth Lemoine. 

Academically, our junior year was very important with visits to college fairs and the taking of the dreaded SA.T.'s. 
This year the honor society inducted 20 members. Three of the officers were Lori MacLeod, JoAnn L'ltalien, and 
Jennifer Phelps. 



During our April vacation, many of us attended a glamourous dance otherwise known as the junior semi-formal. 
Unlike other school dances this one went to 12:00 but one would never know this since the place was cleared by 

10:00. 

As the school year came to an end, the candidates for Boys and Girls State were chosen. They consisted of Scott 
Bleczinski, Paul Bergeron, George Nasser, Doug Rademacher, Tony Quaglietta, Dan Bishop, Mike Reidl, Maura 
Fitzgerald, Lori Melvin, and Lisa Shaefer. Our junior year produced two memorable occurences — the never 
ceasing fire alarms and for many the long awaited driver's license. 

Our Final class election came in May of the junior year, resulting in one of the biggest political battles Methuen 
High School has ever seen. After much publicity, controversy, campaigning, debating, voting, and re-voting, it 
finally resulted in Tom Laliberty — President, Dave Colizzi — Vice-President, Nancy Bakios — Secretary, and 
Erick Kuchar — Treasurer. The 6 class senators were Cindy Shaheen, George Nasser, Lisa Scarelli, Carolyn Pugh, 
Lori Williamson, and Jody Danella. 

Another unusual election occurred when for the first time in Methuen's history there was a tie between Carin 
Men and Betty-Ann Latulippe, the attendents who were accompanying the Homecoming Queen, Sandy Novak. 

What more can be said about the accomplishments of the Methuen High School football team? The team included 
John Motta, Tim Getchell, Jim Mellor, and Erick Kuchar. They finished their season with a 9-0- 1 record. The track 
team also with a victorious overall season record of 15-1 included Mike O'Connell, Dave Colizzi, Mike Shipulski, 
Dan Martin, Tom Laliberty, and Scott Bleczinski. They were not only outstanding track stars, but also the 
foundation of the football team. 




In other sports, memorable athletes included Sue Wante and Colleen Cox for field hockey, Alicia Collopy and 
Michelle Jozokos for volleyball, Monica Baker, Colleen Bleczinski, Roberta Rosemarino, and Ellen Murdock for 
track, Cheryl Sprague and Sandy Novak for gymnastics, Brian Boes and Mike Bolduc for wrestling, and Dawn 
Vinciguerra and Josephine Palmisano for softball. All these worthy athletes were at one time members of the first 
or second All-Star Team. 

A battle entitled "Laliberty vs. Yearbook Staff with the student senate as the catalysts threw much controversy 
into the senior class. 

Time seemed to fly by as we filled out applications and anxiously awaited to hear from colleges and job possibilities. 
The next thing we knew the senior class play was upon us. "Cheaper By The Dozen" produced such fine actors as 
Doug Rademacher, Karen Mahoney, Sandy Cruickshank, Lisa Deschamp, John Perrault, Sue Blodgett, John 
Sciacca, Lori Williamson, Kelly Ross, Billy "You-re So Right" Kenny, and Tom "I'm not getting any help at all" 
Laliberty. 

After years of hard work the Methuen High School Band had such talented musicians as Sue Caredeo, Beth 
Curtis, Sean Devine, Mike Farley, Lisa Hartnett, Fred Iannuccilli, Maria Moan, Chris Smith, and Kenny Waites. As a 
reward the band was honored by travelling to Florida to play in the Disneyworld Parade. Our senior prom occured 
on an unusually nice Saturday towards the end of May. With no unusual occurences, the prom proved to be a 
highly enjoyable event which will never be forgotten. 

And that's the way it was in the year nineteen hundred and eighty-three. 

Sandy Novak, George Nasser, and Erick Kuchar

The year is 2003; the place is Methuen High School Field House, and the event is the twenty-year reunion of the 
graduating class of 1983. The field house, its roof sagging with the weight of its twenty Dalton Flags, has otherwise 
changed very little; however, some of the people changed quite drastically; for instance:

a record shattering time of 2 hours flat; 

Sean Nartiff, John McEneaney, and Scott Tucci have recently been appointed by the President of the United 
States as ambassadors to China because he felt that they could deal most effectively with those people. 

Nuclear war was narrowly averted when Tom Torrisi sneezed and the new Liberated Nazi Party, led by Paul 
Johnston, picked it up on their explosion detection device. But at the last minute, George Nasser talked him out of 
a counter attack. 

Fred Habib, owner of Super Swirl Inc., has challenged Joe Fisichelli of Dairy Queen to a nationwide "taste-off. The 
tasters will be Jim Mellor, Al Firth, JoAnn Firth, and Carla Cuticchia.

CORPO R ATION 



ABOUT PARLEX 
Parlex manufactures flexible printed circuits, flat laminated cable, rigid printed circuits, rigid 
multilayers, and custom thick film hybrids. Our products are used by many of the world's foremost 
manufacturers of electronic equipment for defense, communications, computers, process control, 
and other commercial uses. Our customers list has grown to include General Electric, IBM, Digital 
Equipment, Motorola, and hundreds of others. 

Parlex is a name synonymous with inventiveness and quality. The company is a leader and an 
innovator in its specialty: interconnection and products for electronic equipment. 

Parlex Corporation was organized in May of 1970. The founders of the company initially rented 
office space at the Old Town Hall building in Methuen, Massachusetts. In October of that same year 
operations began at the present site, located at 145 Milk Street in Methuen. The original building 
was 16,000 sq. ft. Later in 1974, and again in 1979, additional space was constructed increasing 
the building area to 50,000 sq. ft. expansion first completed in June of 1982 gives Parlex a total of 
120,000 sq. ft. This makes Parlex one of the largest manufacturers in its field. 

Parlex products have been to the moon and beyond, they also fly in aircraft, travel in U.S. Army 
tanks, move rapidly in computer printers, and they are at the heart of many pacemakers.

School Daze 








Methuen High is a very strange place. 
Rooms do stand with no walls. 
Teachers shout to overcome noise. 
The students attract friends with calls. 

Besides the clatter of the voices, 
Firebells ring without cause. 
All go out while firemen come. 
For this, there should be laws. 

There are other things which distract. 
Voices and bells aren't all. 
Announcements come in the middle 

class. 
These are a bother to all. 

Methuen High is a very strange place. 
It's not without its kinks. 
Many things are hard U 
Most of all to think.
